Now he can't remember whether Greenwood Village's mayor gave him $300 for help with his mortgage, or whether it was a campaign contribution.  Seems to have a little problem with the bookkeeping.

The fool couldn't even explain it away on the Peter Boyle show (with guest host George Brauchler) on Friday.

Possibly electing a politician that cant even keep his personal finances straight enough to pay his mortgage?



Wonderful.

The RNC will abandon Maes and we're going to have Hickenlooper as Governor.

The GOP is definitely in disarray. Not good!

I can't disagree with this.  It's too bad, because I believe the state is ready to swing back over to the R side this election cycle.  Even in Boulder, the mood is "pissed off at the leadership."  I won't be surprised to see some non-Democrat candidates win at the local and county level.

Already leading Republicans and business leaders are writing checks to Hick's campaign. No one wants to support a loser.

Just like the stupid business interests who supported Ritter.

Hick is likely to win, but it's not a done deal.  That being said, Tancredo has a better chance than Maes.  Time to give-up party loyalty.

No! That's not the Arfcom way. We must blindly support the (R) candidate or Obama will be governor and it'll be your fault. You, personally.

Yeah, I spend too much time in GD.... I'm not proud of that.

The GOP supported McInnis supported ( from my contacts ) mostly.  They didn't want Maes anywhere near the Governors mansion.



We're screwed.

he seems to really have an issue with recollectition at best, truthfulness at worst.  

plus, the "This was 25 years ago," he said, adding: "It's just not worth covering that much. It's a nonissue" sort-of is a departure from reality, given that it was his campaign that propped up this idea that he was an undercover guy.  it would seem entirely fair to ask a question about something the candidate himself put out into the public as part of their campaign literature.  

Plus, his arrogance of "whoever typed it, typed it..." when his own campaign manager said it was Maes himself that wrote it doesn't sit particularly well with me.

He won't get anywhere near the Governors mansion. He's a train wreck. Sadly, the Dems are going to stroll into the mansion for another 4 years.

I don't think that people who were going to vote for Maes and bailed are going to vote for Hick.  The only chances this state has of not having Hick in office are Maes withdrawing or people realizing that they don't have to vote R.  Of course, I think that the probabilites of either of those happening are low.

At this point I am voting for Tom T. Hickenlooper



That's basically what you're doing.  I can't blame your anger in the situation, but with Tancredo slipping the R vote, that will certainly ensure a D victory.



Ever wonder why the D's never do this to themselves?  I'm beginning to think they are a bit smarter than the R's.



I've seen this happen in Italy.  We have 10+ political parties.  Can you imagine one wingbat winning with, say 12% of the vote.  Never happened, but it's possible.  



With the R's splitting the vote with Tancredo, we're pretty much ensuring that we have no possibility of winning.  Great, we split a theoretical 50% of the total vote two ways - 25%/25%.  If you have half a brain, please tell me how 25% beats Hickenloopers full vote of the D populace?



We're on the ropes here in Colorado, and both these idiots needs get out.  Meas needs to drop out, and Tancredo needs to get out of the way. This Novemeber will most certainly show us which way this state will be going, and IMHO, not where we all want.

Dan Maes is no better than the douche bags we already have in office and we are trying to remove.

If Maes doesn't withdraw, then all of the R minions need to vote for Tancredo.  I mean seriously, why would anyone vote for Maes at this point?  Having an "R" by his name isn't a good enough reason.

and I'm very sad for my home state.

I just moved into my new home here in Arizona this week but my after spending the first 58 years of my life in Colorado my heart is still there.  I really feel for you guys if the Hickenpooper wins.  I think it will put the final nails in the coffin for Colorado to switch over to a liberal state.  Very sad.

This is what happens when people don't get involved in the selection process to get good people on the primary ballet.



Then, they bitch and moan with the choices, and say they will "Stay home" or vote some third party.



That will accomplish NOTHING other than getting Hickenlooper in.  We need to rally behind who is on the R ticket, and then work our collective asses off to make sure we have good, properly vetted candidates in the next election.



But then again, what do I know, I've only seen this happen in Italy.  20+ parties splitting the votes, while the socialists remain united and continually pwn.

GunCollector––you're correct, to a point.  In this case, Maes seemed legit on paper––he had all the correct answers, appeared to be a conservative firebrand, and was the tea party's answer to the establishment.  But, Maes himself is the that has created this mess with his own mouth and sloppy record keeping.  Maes is the disingenuous one, not the fickle voters of Colorado.

Yes, the primary failed to properly vet him against the guy that took $300K for plagiarizing a report.  People willingly looked past his egregious $17,500 campaign finance fine for paying himself for 44,000 miles of travel expense.  He had enough momentum when McGinnis was on the ropes dealing with the plagiarism scandal to dodge serious inquiry about the idiotic UN control comments about Denver's bike program.

But the "everyone is out to get me" paranoia is brought on by himself.  First, and seemingly innocuous by itself was the $300 from Greenwood Village's mayor.  Either Maes' was lying when he couldn't remember that this was a donation to keep his own house in order (literally to pay the mortgage) or he again was corrupt in his campaign finance recording obligation.  You'd think the guy that received the Colorado-record fine for campaign finance violations (and thus pissed away $17500 of usable funds in the process) would know one from the other.  

Next, and most important of Maes' silliness is the KBI thing.  It has been clearly and unequivocally established that he wrote the offending text on the website.  He typed the words himself.  There was no error in translation.  Then when a paper tries to verify the information, he tried to play it off as some sort of motivated smear investigation.  Guess what, Dan?  you handed this turd to them on a silver platter.  This wasn't some hard-hitting Washington Post, deep throat score.  It was probably a low level douche at the DP that was assigned to verify a statement that Maes himself made.  

This issue and his reaction obviously shows Maes' inexperience.  You can't make a claim, have it verified as untrue, and pass it off as a media witch-hunt.  If they contacted Maes' six-grade girlfriend who lives in a crackhouse and she said "he used to steal milk from the cafeteria" and used that as a smear, that's one thing.  Here, he made the claim which turned out to be embellished at best, an outright lie at worst.

Maes is the engineer in this trainwreck––nobody else.  Maes' own behavior is sinking him, not some sort of establishment campaign.  With him offering up all the ammo his opponents need, the establishment and the other candidates don't really have to "dig" to hard to show this guy (whose claim to fame is running a slimeball "credit repair" company) is clearly questionable.  

P.S.––as far as I'm concerned, anyone involved in the "credit repair" business is already a dirtbag, and I wouldn't have voted for him for that reason alone.
